True, it would be dangerous for a boat to break formation and try to manoeuvre in the middle of the fleet.
False, we have been trained to pick up our own casulaties so that's what we will do on the day.
To allow the press a better photo opportunity (PR is important)
In order to maintain the correct spacing behind the boat in front (it is important to keep the formation as accurate as possible)
When towards the inside of a bend (as you will have less distance to travel than the the boats on the outside of the bend)
To communicate with a nearby boat (As the VHF carried on each Trinity is for listening and emergency only)
For the Safety of your Crew (as crew safety is more important than any other consideration)
Raise the alarm immediately (by making the 'I am stopping' signal).
Attempt to repair the engine.

Coxswain to give the order "out oars" and attempt to maintain position in the formation under oars.
